Jorge’s Question or Topic
Jorge uses animation for education and creates science graphics. Last December, he realized that his passion is sharing his works. So he shared his works on all his social media platforms. He spends most of his time creating the graphics but he notices that most people who do similar activities online would only show 10% of what they create and leave 90% behind a paywall. Now he is troubled because he also has the ability to monetize his works but he also just wants to share them with everybody.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Jorge doesn’t need to copy what other people do. Gary suggests executing what he usually does by giving to the world and having corporate clients. Or he can have one to two live events in a year where everybody comes in, and he can make money on the situation. Not monetizing his audience is a very powerful opportunity if he is skilled at making money outside of them. Also, Jorge can explore merchandising.
Gary also suggested that Jorge can sell a one day zoom event or do a VIP class for 50 people for eight hours at a premium cost where he can go one on one and go deep with them.
For his Youtube channel, he should talk about things that are really valuable for parents who are trying to find activities for their kids.
